I’d like to comment further on the scene from yesterday’s show when Reese and Zach ‘kissed’. First of all, it really wasn’t a ‘kiss’ rather a bit of a nudge and a small peck. My guess from re-watching the scene a couple of times is that Zach whispered something in Reese’s ear when he pulled her close. Though to most, this scene may seem inappropriate, to me it wasn’t. I found the scene to be very sweet. Two people, and eek gads, a man and a woman shared a very sweet moment. I didn’t see anything disgusting or wrong about it. We all know Zach is devoted to Kendall. The scenes of Zach holding his vigil at Kendall’s beside has been evidence enough at that enduring love they have. Being that I’m not a regular watcher of AMC, I would assume that Zach and Kendall are in love. But for me, I feel there is sufficient chemistry between Tamara and Thorsten to warrant a romantic pairing if not for the other issues such as Kendall and Bianca. My comment about the hotness of the scene between Tamara and Thorsten was not to spark a huge debate. It was said because I know what Tamara can do. She’s done it on every soap she’s been on General Hospital with Maurice Benard (Sonny Corinthos), Ted King (Lorenzo/Luis Alcazar), even the less than mediocre pairing with Shaun Benson (Steven Lars). Then to Days with Stephen Nichols (Steve Johnson), James Scott (EJ Welles) and Drake Hogestyn (John Black). Given too how really isolated AMC has kept Tamara in not allowing her other scenes outside of those with Zach and Bianca, one cannot help but see the obvious. Again, I’m not saying that there is going to be some big hot and heavy love affair with Zach and Reese. I’m only saying that there are possbilities. NOTE: I erroneously said that Tamara would be on today. My apologies. The show is a repeat of the tornado episode where Zach delievered Gabrielle.


“You must remember this, a kiss is still a kiss….Okay, I can state with absolute certainty that I wish now that Tamara had been brought on for Thorsten Kaye. I know, I’m a traitor to the cause. Given I’m in a same-sex sitiation (spelled wrong by design) myself, one would think I’d be trumpeting this storyline, however, given the hotness I witnessed today….. I want Tamara and Thorsten as a couple as Reese and Zach. I think it might have to do with Thorsten’s initials. What is it about Tamara and her chemistry with those with the TK pursuasion? The other “TK”, in case you don’t know, is Ted King, Tamara’s co-star on GENERAL HOSPITAL. I know, I know, obligatory Ted King reference. But hey, what can I do. I really did love the interchange between Bianca and Reese today. All the Erica angst was cute. The way Eden described how Erica had the book all made up with even a section on candelabras was sweet. You’ll find more screencaps than usual of Eden due to her descriptive dialogue concerning Erica. I’m constantly amazed at the realness both Tamara and Eden infuse Reese and Bianca with. I love the naturalism of this storyline, though I’m getting a bit tired of Reese’s family/fiancee showing up just at the right time. I’m hoping that after Simon departs, we get to see more of Bianca and Reese’s love and devotion. The irony as of this posting: I’m watching an episode of “Eli Stone” from the first season DVD set I received from my mother for Christmas. There is an episode called “Patience” dealing with a same-sex chimpanzee case Eli (Jonny Lee Miller) handed off to Taylor Wethersby (Natasha Henstridge) and Matt Dowd (Sam Jaeger). And those people that would deny same-sex couplings say it’s unnatural. At least Steve and Pete will be together, according to this judge’s ruling. And Prop 8 is still being litigated. Incredible.

With great disappointment, I’ve had to add a validation key to the comments form. I’ve had a lot of spam with both my TAMARA OBSCURA and TED KING PORTAL sites that this has become necessary. So sorry for the inconvenience. Yours, Dianne


I’ve just set up the newly minted 2009 press section. I’ve also added new articles and some scans to the gallery. One note, like before, if the article doesn’t have a direct mention of Tamara in terms of her name, it won’t be included in the press section, rather, it will be included in the gallery as a scan since it does mention Reese. Tamara had a lovely quote about Reese’s love for Bianca, which I think, will be heartening to Bianca’s fans in light of all the heartbreak Bianca has found with her previous relationships:Is Reese truly committed to Bianca (Eden Riegel)? Tamara Braun assures: “She is completely and totally in love with Bianca and wants her and no one else. She wants to marry Bianca with all her heart.” There were also some additions to OBSCURE MEDIA, but I think I’ll just let those speak for themselves. There’s a lot here for you to absorb so I’ll let you go over to OBSCURE MEDIA and peruse.


I’d like to take this time to wish all the visitors to TAMARA OBSCURA & OBSCURE MEDIA a very Merry Christmas. Don’t eat too much and certainly, be careful when drinking and driving. If you do plan on indulging, please be sure to use a designated driver. We want you around for 2009. My best wishes to you and yours. With love and thanks, Dianne…Webmaster TAMARA OBSCURA and OBSCURE MEDIA.


This is a reminder, ALL MY CHILDREN will not be airing an original episode until 26 December 2008 due to Christmas. December 24/25 will be a repeat of the tornado episodes and when Bianca gave birth to Gabrielle. I’ll try to have something for you to get you over the next couple of days. Though, you still can review clips of previous episodes on the ALL MY CHILDREN CHANNEL at OBSCURE MEDIA.
